As a long-time, foreign resident in Rabat, I used to rely upon a trip to Dinarjat to provide a pleasing evening for foreign guests, or as a destination to celebrate a special occasion. After my most recent visit, sadly, I won't be doing that anymore... The hostess/manager of the restaurant is as gracious as ever - but problems may begin... More

Loved the atmosphere, the exotic bathroom, the food and drink menu, the food, the wait staff and speakeasy type entrance.

My husband and I went with much anticipation. We were told that it was authentic food with great service. Neither is true. The decor is beautiful but it needs more attention to cleaning. The young woman who greeted and attended us was inattentive, and disorganized. We would wait 15 minutes or longer for her to appear. She would plop the... More

This would have been my third visit to Dinarjat, I do like the location and the atmosphere, and I have yet to be disappointed by the food. The tanjines (stewed meat dishes) of lamb, veal, chicken or fish, are all quite good, with fresh ingredients. I do enjoy the mix of 'sweet and savory'... a flavorful meat like lamb, accented... More

We visited thinking it would be a special experience of Moroccan food. What we found was that the few dishes it served were pretty much what you would have found in the souks locally (although not as good quality, oddly!) The tajines came served on a plate rather than the tajines they should have been cooked in, and were average... More

The place was recommended for dinner so we made a reservation and turned up at the appointed time. Most of the diners were extremely well dressed, not that we dressed like tramps. The place is beautifully done up and looks like a riad in itself. We were seated in a room just off the main courtyard. The 3 of us... More

A really beautiful riad with very friendly service from greeting to goodbye. Located is a an exquisite riad with wonderfully warm colors and rich textures. The food is classic Moroccan fair done very well. Nice touches like rinsing hands with rose water pre-meal. Reasonalble wine list and very tasty appetizers, salads and tagines

The restaurant, located in an old rial, is not easy to find but so worth going. The atmosphere of the old refurbished rial adds its own flair and so does the staff and service. The food, especially the tagines, are exceptional, the service is attentive and makes you feel set back in time. A very pleasant experience and not overpriced.
